The Oscar-winner for “Ray” was chosen as best male musical artist for his album “Unpredictable.” He summed up the honor backstage by stating that music was “what I always wanted to do.”

Alicia Keys won for best female artist, and also took home top song and video awards for “Unbreakable.” Mariah Carey, who just earned three Grammys earlier this month, received a best album award for “The Emancipation of Mimi.”

Stress, who has it, who deals with it?

Only half of worried Americans try to manage their stress.......When it comes to dealing with stress, a number of Americans turn to unhealthy behaviors such as overeating and smoking for relief and don’t exercise, according to a survey released today by the American Psychological Association (APA)............

*Author Octavia E. Butler, renown as the first African American woman to receive notoriety as a science fiction writer, died Sunday at her home in the north Seattle suburb of Lake Forest Park. She was 58.

Butler fell and hit her head on the walkway outside of her house, where her body was found Friday (Feb 24) according to Leslie Howle, a longtime friend and employee at the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle. Butler, who moved to Seattle in 1999 from her native Southern California, suffered from high blood pressure and heart trouble and could only take a few steps before having to stop and catch her breath, Howle told the Associated Press.

Tyler Perry’s ‘Reunion’ tops box office

This was a good movie for those that have seen the plays he did do some combining of stories to make this one but all in all, it was still great!  I recommend you see it and it has some funny moments too.  Madea does not spare the rod!

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tyler Perry fans reunited at theaters for another tale of mad black women. “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion,” a comic drama in which writer-director Perry also stars in three roles, debuted as the weekend’s No. 1 movie with $30.25 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It was a second gold mine for Lionsgate Films, which also released Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” the movie that opened as No. 1 with $21.9 million on the same weekend last year.

Lionsgate hopes to have a third Perry movie out over the same weekend next year, said Steve Rothenberg, the company’s president of distribution.

Tyra Goes Undercover As a Stripper

Well this should make for an interesting show.

Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2006
By: EURweb.com

T-Pain speaks for a number of men in his latest single “I’m In Love with a Stripper,” and now Tyra Banks wants to find out the reason behind the obsession. 
Although February sweeps is a done deal, tomorrow’s episode of “The Tyra Banks Show,” (March 1) will feature the host going undercover as a stripper in a topless club...as research. 

“So many women have emailed me and I’ve personally had so many conversations with my friends who are frustrated with the men in their lives spending so much time and so much money in strip clubs,” she explains. “I dated a guy that went to these places all the time, and he would say nothing was happening.  And I was like, ‘Yeah right.’”

On the episode, Banks will sport a wig, fake teeth, prosthetic nose, and gobs of makeup to transform herself into a dancer named “Chanel.”

“When I found out the majority of business is from males from married homes, I wanted to go inside the minds of the men who frequent these clubs,” she continues. “I wanted to see and hear why they went.  And the only way to do that was to go undercover and see for myself. One thing I wanted to do is actually go up on stage and dance.  I wanted to look into those men’s eyes and know what [they are] getting out of this.”

My site has been abused by the righteous!

Due to the abuse of a few visitors, I’ve had to remove the link at the top of the page to encourage new posters.  I have received so many emails from people asking to “register” for the site that really don’t want to register.  All they want to do is to read new posts.  Registration isn’t needed for that.  Registration IS needed for individuals to author content on the site.  Since none of the new “registrations” are for new authors, I’ve removed the link.  If someone wants to author content, they’ll have to do a little more research in order to contact me about that process.

I’ll not mention who the abusers are, but I’ll hint to it.  Take a look at the past few posts to see a common theme and you’ll know all about it.

Anyway, I still invite those of you that are interested in commenting to make your comments or objections in the post and NOT to send me a personal email about it.  I get too much SPAM now as it is.

Take care and above all “Practice what you preach”.

And the stupidity continues…

I wish these people would stop blowing up my email with messages that would serve more people if they were posted in public.

Semper Fidelis

Yes, I will post this.

Take care,

Don’t have a degree?  Don’t fret.  Remember the game of life?

If you’ve ever played the game of life, then stop playing it now and get serious and take a spin.  Degrees aren’t necessary.  The knowledge learned in college sometimes is.  I had lots of arguments with people in past that claimed that just because a person with a degree was entitled to more money than one who didn’t.  Hell, you can buy degrees online for $19.95 + tax!  And just because a person has a degree in show- shinign doesn’t mean that they can do a better job than someone that has years of experience shining shoes.  Give me my bootblack back!

20 great jobs that don’t require a degree
Four-year college not only path to well-paid work

From CareerBuilder.com
Friday, February 24, 2006; Posted: 7:30 a.m. EST (12:30 GMT)

What do Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and entertainment mogul David Geffen have in common? Besides being exceedingly rich, none of them has a college degree.

Though it was once conventional wisdom that you needed to have a four-year college degree to be successful, many employment experts believe that maxim has become myth.

While a college education increases a worker’s chances of earning more money, it’s certainly not the only reliable path to well-paid and rewarding work.

Even though good jobs increasingly require some post-high school training, many still don’t require a four-year degree. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, eight of the top 10 fastest-growing occupations through 2014 do not require a bachelor’s degree.

Look at what I have to deal with!

Why don’t people take the time to check themselves out before they start pointing fingers?  This is my response to an email I received about the first Hezekiah Walker post.  This also includes the original email above my response.

I wish people would get this worked up about issues that I consider more important like institutional racism and the continued erosion of our Freedom of Speech rights.

Ms. Practice what you preach, please don’t waste my time with your personal emails berating me and my weblog.  If you would like to discuss this issue, do it in public where the subject was first published.  I’ll do us all a favor and post your email and my response on the weblog.

Why did I allow people to comment on a story?  Well, you’ve taken your time to comment to me publicly.  I can’t stop you from sending me this message that was unsolicited nor can I stop people from posting what they feel is newsworthy.  As a matter of fact, I INVITE people to post what they feel is newsworthy.  You clicked on the link that says, “Email Admin to register” not “I don’t know how to make a public comment so I’ll try this”. 

I invite you to start your own weblog that deals only with facts that you’ve researched yourself.  I’m sure that you’ll find that fact checking isn’t as easy as finger-pointing is.  Besides ... I’m no journalist. Thanks for confusing me as one.

My comment of, “Now, we are burdened to judge his misdeeds. I hate what he has done to us.” was meant to be taken as an ironic statement.

I’ll even go so far and be flippant and say, “If you don’t like what is written, then YOU should take steps to castigate the original author and rumor-starter and not myself and the individuals that copied this and other stories on my weblog”.  If you are so concerned about facts, then I invite you to participate in the daily discussions on the site.

Why did you not comment on the post about Bill Bennet’s statement about aborting Black babies?  Why did you not comment on the reported death of Rosa Parks.  I don’t have first-hand knowledge of either of these events, but I feel that it is my duty to provide an area where myself and others may post on news that they read.  I also have provided an option for individuals llike yourself to comment on the post’s factual or fictitious nature. Please utilize the comment posting feature in the future.

Perhaps I am a little slow when it comes to understanding a few things, but I think I clearly understand that you are just as hypocritical as I am when you judged me to be a hypocrite.

Please don’t react to one post or one point of view before you, yourself, do some research.  You’ll notice if you take the time to read that I commented that the musicnewsweekly.com author invited me to edit the entry on my site that quoted an entry on his site.  I did that very same thing the following day.

I appreciate your views.

All the best.,
SPN
